4341First car with a constant crash-avoidance systemVolvo XC60firstSweden, 01 January 2008Swedish car maker Volvo, the company that invented and introduced the seatbelt in 1959 (and has never charged rival car brands to use its patented design), released in 2008 the first car to constantly monitor the possibility of – and then avoid – a nose-to-tail crash.A laser in the windscreen of the Volvo XC60 wagon continually monitors slow-moving traffic 6-8 m ahead of the front bumper. If the driver has not applied the brakes in time, the City Safety system will automatically bring the car to an abrupt halt. If travelling at less than 15 km/h, contact with the car in front can be avoided – between 15 km/h and 30 km/h there may be light contact with the car in front. This Volvo system differs from other radar-based auto braking technology that only works when cruise control is activated. Volvo also became the first car-maker to introduce pedestrian detection and avoidance technology. This radar and camera-based system (introduced on the Volvo S60 sedan in May 2010) constantly scans for pedestrians between 30 m and 150 m in front of the car – and abruptly applies the brakes and brings the car to a stop if the driver has not reacted in time.

4343Longest known case of argyriaRosemary JacobsfirstUnited States, Derby04 April 2011Rosemary Jacobs (b. 23 August 1942 in USA) has been affected by argyria from 1956 a couple of years after she started taking nasal drops containing colloidal silver (CSP). Argyria is a condition caused by improper exposure to chemical forms of the element silver causing the skin to developed an irreversible grey tinge.A skin biopsy in 1965 revealed a multitude of silver particles embedded deep beneath her epidermis. Now, after years of verbal abuse, cruel remarks and severe skin treatments, Mrs Jacobs is determined to raise awareness of the dangers of taking supplements and medicines containing silver. The retired Spanish teacher believes there has been an increase in dietary supplements containing CSP and says they should be banned or have warning labels. In the 1970's she underwent agonising skin dermabrasion where the top layer of skin is removed, leaving it raw. Her face healed but she was left with a pink and blotchy complexion. There are a few dozen other cases of argyria worldwide. The most famous is Paul Karason, from California, known as the Blue Man, and U.S Libertarian candidate Stan Jones who gained a more greyish hue.
